Learn About Benzodiazepine Addiction Treatment

Understand treatment for benzodiazepine addiction at Sierra by the Sea in Newport Beach, CA

Benzodiazepines, which are commonly referred to as benzos, are medications that are frequently prescribed to treat conditions such as anxiety and insomnia. Physicians also prescribe benzos to reduce seizures, relax muscles, and minimize symptoms of alcohol withdrawal.

Benzos have sedative, hypnotic, and anxiolytic properties, and because they affect the central nervous system, their impact on the body and brain is almost immediate.

When used as directed, benzos can help a person experience deeper sleep and feel more calm, relaxed, and focused. Unfortunately, when benzodiazepines are misused, people can develop a tolerance to the drug, which can produce a variety of negative effects, including addiction. Many people who abuse benzos do so to achieve a euphoric sensation.

Once you become addicted to benzos, it can be very difficult to control the symptoms on your own. Addictions are chronic, meaning that they generally don’t go away without clinical intervention. But with the right type and level of professional care, you can experience long-term recovery.

Why Consider Treatment at Sierra by the Sea
